Never forgetting the past, these 1619 sterling silver cufflinks with rhodium plating to ensure a long lasting sterling silver shine. 1619 represents one additional way to remember when the slave trade in the Americas was first recorded. In August 1619, about 30 enslaved Africans disembarked from a slave ship at Point Comfort, today's Fort Monroe in Hampton, Va. The enslaved were captured by English privateers from the Spanish slave ship San Juan Bautista. They were characterized as human chattel and were traded for supplies. There were other slave ships trading human beings previously and during 1619. However, records could only be found of Africans arriving to England's mainland American colonies in the summer of 1619.
